Inspired By Nature

Oh, My!  I created this week...YAY!  We have been enjoying these hot, summer days by the pool, so I haven't had much time to create.  Today, is going to be a scorcher, so I decided I better get busy this morning creating my card for the sketch challenge I am hosting this Saturday at Paper Craft Planet.

I have had this set, Inspired By Nature on my wish list for a while and decided it was time to buy.  I see so many pretty cards made with this set.  I love the silhouette.  I stamped my main image in Night of Navy craft ink and embossed it with iridescent ice embossing powder.  This "stuff" is the bomb!

See the background?  I used the square lattice embossing folder, but I turned it up a notch.  I inked it up with crumb cake ink before I ran it through the Big Shot.  Love that technique!

Materials used are stampin’ up! Unless noted

I am working on a layout for Tanner's stitches; however, I can't remember the title I thought of for it.  I am stuck on a title now.  Can you think of a good one?

Kim, this is just beautiful! That embossing powder looks fabulous heated up and inking the embossing folder first sure adds wonderful dimension to the card. Well done!
